About the Event
Due to habitat loss and pesticide use, pollinator populations are declining in New England and worldwide. In response, Mayor Ballantyne’s Public Space and Urban Forestry Division is developing a Somerville Pollinator Action Plan (SPAP) to identify interventions foster habitat for pollinators in the city.
The Somerville Pollinator Action Plan will:
- Describe Somerville-specific and regional pollinator species.
- Explore pollinator habitat within the city’s network of urban open spaces.
- Educate public servants and city residents on the interdependence of pollinators, habitat, and resilient urban life.
- Propose ways that public servants and residents can foster Somerville-appropriate pollinator habitat.
The mayor has appointed a SPAP Advisory Committee to lead this effort. The committee is comprised of youth, community members and advocates, inter-departmental City staff, and members of relevant Somerville non-profit groups. They hired a consultant and began the plan development phase in December 2023.
Once a month, the Somerville Pollinator Action Plan Advisory Committee meets to review the latest updates in this planning process. They will discuss the work of the consultant team, provide feedback, will discuss public engagement strategies, and will field questions/comments from the public.
